The big day is almost here! The weather has been perfect, and the ride side has been enjoyable, but Boulder Beach is opening for the season on June 9th! With this being the 15th season that the water park has been open, we have learned a thing or two on what’s essential to pack for a successful day. This guide will help you and your family pack for the big opening weekend with little to no mishaps. Luckily, if you happen to forget any of these items most of them are available to purchase in the Boulder Beach Trading Co.


Most guests flee to the water park the moment that the park opens, and they stay there until that part of the park closes, which is at 7 pm. If this is your plan as well, then it is important to protect your skin from the harmful rays as much as possible by wearing sunscreen. As soon as you find the perfect spot by the wave pool, quickly apply the sunscreen accordingly, and then you can race to your favorite slide!

Cover Up or Extra Clothes

After the water park closes, you might want to go to the dry park side and ride some coasters. We know what you are thinking, riding a roller coaster is the perfect way to dry off! But swimsuits are not allowed in Silverwood, and shirts, shoes and appropriate dress are required. Besides, it might feel nice to change into some warm, dry clothes at the end of the day. Try bringing a ziplock bag for your wet clothes to keep the rest of your items dry.

Beach Towels

There are towels available to rent over by the tube rental, but you will save money and time by bringing your own. These towels will be perfect when you want to save that chair in the sandy spot by the Lazy River.  There are also free cabanas available on a first come, first serve basis. Once you get to the park, race down to Avalanche mountain or the exit and save your spot with your towels.

Empty, Reusable Water Bottle

There are plenty of beverages available for purchase at the park. We have assorted Pepsi beverages, lemonade, iced tea, slushies, and beer. If you like Pina Coladas, we even have those too! But it is extremely important to stay hydrated when you are at Boulder Beach, and if you have a reusable water bottle, you might want to bring it. We have a couple drinking fountains throughout the park that you can refill at. We want all of our guests to be safe and have the best experience possible, and staying hydrated will help ensure that. If you have one of our Silverwood Sports Bottles, make sure to bring that to get your 99 cent beverage refills!

These next few suggestions are specifically for those that are bringing little ones to the water park. Packing for tiny tots does require some strategizing, and this is what we recommend.

Life Jacket

We get this question a lot by first time visitors, but we do actually have free life jackets here at the water park. However, there are a limited amount and they are first come, first serve type of deal. If you want to make sure that your little one has one, then you can bring your own as long is it is US Coast Guard or Canadian Coast Guard approved. That way you won’t have to wander around looking for one, or have to adjust the straps. You can just strap them in and let them have fun right away!


Water Shoes

Walking around the park, standing in lines, and playing around the pools can be hard on little feet. Water shoes can help protect your little one’s feet and make a more enjoyable experience. Just make sure that they remove them when they want to go down a slide, because the lifeguard will have your child remove them for their safety.

Swim Diapers

If your little one is in diapers, you will need to bring something for them to swim in for health reasons. If you happen to forget to pack swim diapers there are some for sale in the Boulder Beach store.
